Will You Answer the Call?
“My sheep know my voice and they come at my call;…….He calleth his own sheep by name and leadeth them out,” (John 10).
The Christian walk is filled with numerous calls from our Savior. Jesus gives out the universal invitation-“Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest,” (Matthew 11:28). This call, given to all of us who are born in sin, is for whoever is willing to hear. If you have cone to Him, you have indeed found rest in Him. This, however, is just the first call.
The entrance or the beginning of the sweet rest that is found in Him. In addition to this universal call, there is an individual call that specific call is custom tailored to each of us and to the individual assignment He will later want is to accomplish.
I am in no position to guess what God is calling you to do. However, I do believe He is trying to tell us to answer His call for our lives. Reflect and see if there may have been many divine calls that you wither intentionally ignored, or allowed other noises to crowd out your hearing. If for whatever reason you think you did not answer His call, now is the time.
Answer the Call!
